So long Dochang
Yesterday was my last visit to Dochang Elementary School. I’m going to miss my kids. They’re a class of only three boys and so much fun. I wish all three of them had shown up for the last day. I guess they had more important things to do.
It was nice to have a proper co-teaching experience. Kathryn, another American teacher living in Wasu, and I taught TOGETHER like the term suggests. She’s an awesome teacher and an all-around awesome person. Mr. Lee came to check out our ice cream project. He’s always cool.
We only had five students. One of my boys, and three students from another class. Camp was a breeze.
I learned the Cups Song along with the kids. It was fun battling them once we got the hang of it (or at least we thought we did). Mr. Lee, after watching for a while, grabbed a cup and started doing it perfectly. Show off! He’s just smart like that.
After the Cups Song, we made vanilla ice cream.
And after that, we watched Toy Story 3 with Korean subtitles. 2:30 pm rolled around shortly after, and it was time to head back to Wasu. I’m going to miss Dochang.
Back To Wasu
At Wasu, I had to teach my final first grade class at 3:00. I had to make haste getting there, of course.
Once there, my one student, his older sister who came to hang out, and I made ice cream. We tried to, anyway. The poor little guy’s milk wouldn’t freeze, so he ended up with a smoothie instead. The important thing is that we had fun and he learned something new.
Yeah…. yesterday was a pretty chill day.
